This acclaimed, bestselling beginning Chinese language-learning series “integrates” the best of the grammatical and functional approaches to language acquisition. It is a challenging, cohesive series that stresses all four language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Level 1 is available in two parts, one for each semester, in traditional or simplified character editions. Level 2 includes both T and S in each book. Teacher’s manuals use T characters only.
New in the Integrated Chinese series: Level 2 Character Writing Workbook. Much more than a writing book, it features traditional and simplified characters in one volume, example sentences in traditional characters showing word usage in context, and four useful appendices: A list of proper nouns and measure words, an English-Chinese glossary that includes all the vocabulary in Levels 1 and 2, a Chinese character index including all characters appearing in Levels 1 and 2, and example sentences in simplified form.
The workbooks follows the format of the textbook and have four components:
Listening Comprehension: Listen to the workbook and textbook audio cassette and answer questions.
Speaking Exercises: Answer questions in Chinese based on the dialogues.
Reading Comprehension: Read and answer questions in Chinese. Writing and Grammar Exercises: Sentence formation and completion activities, translation and composition.
